Overview

There's a change in the air. High-profile projects such as the Linux Kernel, Mozilla, Gnome, and Ruby on Rails are now using Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS) instead of the old stand-bys of CVS or Subversion.

Git is a modern, fast, DVCS. But understanding how it fits into your development can be a daunting task without an introduction to the new concepts. Whether you're just starting out as a professional programmer or are an old hand, this book will get you started using Git in this new distributed world.

Whether you're making the switch from a traditional centralized version control system or are a new programmer just getting started, this book prepares you to start using Git in your everyday programming.

Pragmatic Version Control Using Git starts with an overview of version control systems, and shows how being distributed enables you to work more efficiently in our increasingly mobile society. It then progresses through the basics necessary to get started using Git.

You'll get a thorough overview of how to take advantage of Git. By the time you finish this book you'll have a firm grounding in how to use Git, both by yourself and as part of a team.

  • Learn how to use how to use Git to protect all the pieces of your project
  • Work collaboratively in a distributed environment
  • Learn how to use Git's cheap branches to streamline your development
  • Install and administer a Git server to share your repository

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As I expected, this book upholds the high standards set by the CVS and Subversion editions of this book, and is a great introductory read to get anyone up and running with Git!"

 - Tony Cappellini, Reviewer, Bay Area Python Interest Group

"I give this book a thumbs-up, because even though there is the free Git Community Book, Wiki, and other free documentation, Pragmatic Version Control Using Git is the best-organized and most thorough."

- Carla Schroder, Linux Today
